Sick (flu) while breastfeeding...
Hi. I am asking this on behalf of my wife...
She gave birth almost 4 months ago. She is breastfeeding. However, she became sick about 4 days ago. Has terrible flu and coughs all the time. We have been to the pharmacist who just says that there is NOTHING she can take, because she is breastfeeding. Is there really nothing at all that my wife can take in order to ease her pain? She struggles very much and it hurts me to see her in this condition.

She can take Panado and Benylin cough syrup.

Best wishes
